I'm in the middle of icing my christmas cake and have made some Royal Icing for snow. I've been electric whisking it now for 15 minutes and it doesn't seem to be stiffening at all!! I've used the correct quantities of egg white to icing sugar....any ideas???? HELP

Can only suggest adding more icing sugar. That should do it.

Keep bunging in more icing sugar until it looks about right.

Or buy the whole cake, all iced and ready!

Add icing sugar one teaspoon at a time. Beat for 1 minute between each adding. Keep going until it makes a ribbon trail and then beat and beat. Add more icing sugar one teaspoon at a time after 5 mins if it still doesn't make light, stiff peaks.

Royal icing takes a lot of beating to get it light enough.
